Description Nikolay Metchev 2005-02-02 11:45:35 UTC
if bug 10021 is unfesable to do then at least there could be a silent uninstall
option so that a batch file could be writted to effectively do bug 10021.

/s has been implemented long ago (in theory).
Comment 2 Nikolay Metchev 2005-02-02 12:20:54 UTC
It still presents a dialog box to the user asking if everything under tomcat
should be removed. This dialog box should be avoided by some command line options.
Comment 3 Remy Maucherat 2005-02-02 12:29:33 UTC
It's /S, and 5.5.7 works great. Please do not reopen the report.

Dialog box that shows on silent uninstall

I am not sure what you understand by "silent" install. I define it as the user
not being presented with any dialog boxes whatsoever. I have attached a
screenshot of the dialog box that gets present when you run the uninstaller
with the /S option. I am requesting that there be another option for example
/CLEAN=TRUE which will avoid the dialog box. The whole point of a silent
install is that you can integrate it into the installer of another package. We
dont want to expose the use of Tomcat to the end user of our product because it
really does not concern them. If the attached dialog box pops up to our end
user they will not know what to do with it. I hope I am making myself clear.
Please let me know if I am not.

Ah, ok, the problem is during the uninstallation process, with this yes/no. You
should have described the issue more precisely.

Fixed in CVS. Sorry for the trouble.
Comment 7 Nikolay Metchev 2005-02-02 13:22:47 UTC
I am sorry if my description was not clear. I will endevour to be more eliquent
in future.
